The United States would never, repeat never, enter a nuclear engagement with Russia if NATO’s Article 5 – an attack on one member was an attack on all, including the US itself – was ever operationalised. Saving the US homeland if Montenegro was occupied by Russian forces is definitely not on the American agenda. It was a bluff and both Russia and the US knew it was. So there will be no war in Europe for the foreseeable future. Both sides recognise this even if the EU doesn’t. As for the half-wits east of the Oder-Niesse line, they have simply… Read more »

Further to my comment below. I have raised the issue of the occupation of large areas of both Lugansk and Donetsk by the Ukrainian occupying force. This dates back to the early conflict between the Ukrainian army and the Lugansk and Donetsk militias, who stopped the invasion during the battles of Ilovaisk and Debaltsevo in 2015. About two-thirds of the Lugansk region and a good chunk of the Donetsk region is still occupied by the Ukrainian armed forces. If both the Lugansk and Donetsk Peoples republics wish to break away from Ukraine do the areas which are now being controlled… Read more »

Good analysis. I would only add that the US will never in the foreseeable future be able to compete with China because the U.S./globalist oligarchy will not relinquish neoliberalism (private banking and privatization of key sectors of the economy).

There will be no summit forna very simple reason: there’s no point in talking to these people. They are liars and cannot be trusted. Zelensky is leading a very dangerous life now after being told what the predators want. He should have studied what happened to other “friends” of the U.S. like Gaddafi, Saddam hussein, the shah of persia or even Mr. bin Laden. Being a friend of the U.S. it seems is not exactly good for yoir health. The russians know exactly what Zelensky was rold. The walls in kyiv have russian ears, as i wrote here before. Russians… Read more »

I’m assuming Zelensky is a reasonable human being. He wasn’t the dream candidate of the Americans, as was Arsenic Yatsenuk in 2014. He might even want to talk to Wladimir Putin. The problem from the Russian point of view is probably not Zelensky at all, it is those who tell him what to do and who have the power to constrain his options: the Americans, who want to keep the low-intensity conflict alive, and their marionettes in Kyiv, as well as those dogmatic Atlanticist people in Brussels. It seems to me to be prudent not to always assume the worst… Read more »

Dogmatic atlanticist people in Brussels? Significantly Brussels is where the headquarters of NATO as well as the seat of the EU Commission is located. De Gaulle banished NATO from Paris, Trump called NATO obsolete and Macron called it brain dead.

The russians are the ones in this game who have the least problems. They can just sit back and watch. They know a dying empire if they see one. They’ve been through this themselves.
Once Belarus and russia are united later this year Ukraine will be in a very difficult position if it relies on “the west”. The Zelensky crowd is already going batshit crazy in ukrainian propaganda outlets. They’re done.
